I'm posting the final part of my Alpha Sapphire Nuzlocke Scramble in a couple of hours, which means it is time to start recruiting a team for the 4th installment of the series!

I will be moving onto Sinnoh and playing through Pokemon Platinum! Just like always, I'm combining the Scramble with a slight variation of the Nuzlocke rules, meaning that if one of my Pokemon faints, I can no longer use it for the remainder of the game. This does up the difficulty quite a bit, so I will be accepting a couple of reserves to use as back ups.

Some additional rules:

Fully evolved Pokemon only.
Do not suggest any Pokemon that are not available within Pokemon Platinum. Trade evolutions are totally fine because I have two DS systems and multiple gen 4 games.
Remember that this is a more difficult version of a Scramble AND Pokemon Platinum isn't an easy game. I'm not asking you to give me only S tier Pokemon, but try to be mindful of what other people have already given so I don't end up with a team full of common weaknesses/lack of offensive presence/etc...
Slots:

I will be accepting 10 Pokemon in total, six for the main team (including my starter) and four reserves.

For the main team, I would like to have at least THREE Pokemon by the third gym and a FULL TEAM by the 5th gym. Reserves can be Pokemon found at any point of the game, even late game.

Main team:

  1. Empoleon
  2. Togekiss
  3. Drapion
  4. Medicham
  5. Rapidash
  6. Yanmega
6986

Reserves:

  1. Carnivine
  2. Weavile
  3. Rotom
  4. Garchomp

Thank you all for the pokemon. (Even though Scrafty is one of my all-time least favourite pokemon. :/) Just two more to go and I'm ready :)

@Kaori I wanted to give you Drapion :drapion:, but they're apparently a hugh pain to catch. So if you'd rather not spend an unknown amount of days searching for a Skorupi then I'll give you a Hippowdon :hippowdon: instead.
Your choice. :)

I've actually always wanted to use a Drapion, so I'll risk the low encounter rate!

@Kaori yo I'll give you Weavile as a reserve since you don't have any Dark or Ice types yet. Good luck!!

Btw here's a friendly reminder that @Moonwatcher and I still need two Pokemon for each of us. (idk if it's two or one for him, and it's one for each slots for me)

@SAF For your final Pokemon, how about Goodra? :goodra:
Oof, it's going to be tough to get one, but I'll take that anyway. :hmmazurill:

Now that I've got my full team, gimme some time to snag Elio's parts~ :whistleazurill:
